Loving sending out my mail for InCoWriMo
So far this week I’ve sent to Lisa in Norfolk UK,
my Dad in Northamptonshire, UK,
Tanya in Leicester, UK,
and to my sister in Northamptonshire, UK.
It’s lovely choosing different things for different people 🙂
The postman arrived early this morning and bought very happy mail. A lovely letter from Nancy in Iowa USA and some washi tape I ordered from Sweet Supplies Store on Etsy (from Japan) . I love buying from there because she’s very efficient and packages so beautifully!
I can’t wait to use my washi tape 🙂
Happy Mailing New Year to all of you who love making and receiving mail. I’m Excited to be starting a new year of making mail and to come up with some new Ideas and new ways I can cheer people up with mail. I’m also looking forward to making new faux postage stamps as well.
I have a new friend who lives in Norway who is not very well, so sending a nice letter is the least I can do.
Is there anyone you could cheer up with a letter or postcard? 🙂
Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals 🙂
If you send all sorts of mail, you get all sorts of mail in return 🙂
Here are some of my recently received letters from the USA and Italy, lovely words from Elisa, Debbie and Deborah. If you begin to write to some one new, the chances are that you begin a friendship that lasts many years, getting to know them by who they are not what they look like, treasuring the things they tell you about themselves. Why don’t you try it? It doesn’t have to be a long letter, it’s the thought that counts!
I have managed to write and send 19 letters out of 28 so far for ‘International Correspondence Letter Writing Month‘ (and also a few postcards for ‘Postcrossing‘). Countries I’ve sent to include UK, USA, India, Canada, Iceland and Belarus, 🙂 So I’m happy with what I’ve achieved. I have received 5 letters so far and still have some letters to reply to.
I have really enjoyed taking part this year, it is a joy to send blessings through the post, mostly to people I don’t know!
I found this little star buy on our collectors market the other day. I’ve made my own labels for it and hung it in our hall way. What do you think? 🙂
